Parliamentary film ban gets respect it deserves

The ridiculous Parliamentary self-censorship has been given the respect it deserves. TV3 showed footage of National MP David Carter picking his nose, while TV One had footage of National MP Bob Clarkson being expelled for refusing to apoligise for calling another MP a liar, and 4 other MPs, Eric Roy (National), Winston Peters (NZ First), Peter Dunne (United Future) and Mahara Okeroa (Labour) taking naps. Salient has showed similar respect for the ban. As I blogged earlier, the public should have a right to see the behaviour of their MPs and the press should have a right to report on it. Just like they can with any other citizen in public.
